Telemetry Live with Heather Mease and Jordan Perry, Matias Vilaplana, Ted Coffey and Kevin Davis

October 9, 2021 - 7:00pm
The Bridge PAI

October's Telemetry event will be in-person and outdoors in front of The Bridge PAI. The event is starting promptly at 7pm in order to be finished with sound before noise ordinances. 

 

Heather Mease is a composer, electronic musician, and multimedia artist whose work focuses on the appropriation of media and pre-existing forms, recorded materials, and found objects as a means for exploring material culture, waste, and the consequences of nostalgia. Heather performs and releases electronic music as “corncob.”

“Although there are some basic volk sonorities in his playing, Perry’s brunt combines these with more avant garde note selections and compositional gambits, as well as a string attack with classical qualities.  While there’s a gentleness to the melodies at which he eventually arrives, Perry’s journey across prickly patches of tone clusters has a circular logic too that defies pop logic.” 

-Byron Coley

 

"Matias Vilaplana's creative practices involve recording/mixing, music composition, musical interaction design in virtual reality, ensemble improvisation with live audio processing and visual arts."
